The list of hopefuls.

  1. Configure mod-security for my webhost
  2. Resolve the excessive 401 responses that Ownbutt keeps generating
  3. Training? If I get a response from Tom
  4. Replace the clutch hose on the car (it leaks)
  5. Some calligraphed letters
  6. Start on the decking around the spa.
  7. Practice violin

It seems that #2 is destined to fail, as the Ownbutt admins are calling the behaviour that I'm seeing a feature, and not a bug. What happens is that for every file in the sync'd folders, the Ownbutt client generates an un-authenticated PROPFIND request, and when that fails (as it should), it will then send an authenticated request. The end result is two requests for every file, doubling the load at all possible stages (client, server, logs). Idiotic? Why surely so!

Need to do some reading to get my head wrapped around #1, but the intent is to protect my web sites against random attacks.

[personal profile] dormant_dragon is up in Canberra this weekend (and Bathurst for the next two weeks), so I'll be doing more cooking than usual.
